Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I have been reading, and am enchanted with The Lady of the Lake. It has all the spirit of either of its predecessors, (have you read it?) and ten times the interest. When I had finished it, I remained with such a relish for Walter Scott, that I immediately borrowed and sat down to a second perusal of Marmion.'
